ID Please?

Pretty sure the green/yellow and grey one is a Senegal parrot, not sure what the red and blue one is. At first I thought eclectus parrot, but all pics I've seen of female eclectus parrots have black bills, not orange. Again, any help appreciated - thanks :)

      Your correct: Number one is a Senegal Parrot :)

      I think it's a red lory (Eos bornea). You're right about the eclectus and they are rather bigger birds with a darker shade of red.

      My first thought was maybe eclectus parrot too, but the feathers are a bit off as well.
    • Chlidonias
      I would agree with that

      Just discovered the photo. There are several Senegal parrots in this aviary, but one - presumably the one pictured - has a close bond with the Red Lory. Whenever I visit they are usually seen to be perching together at some point in the day and often mutually preening.
